Why you should declutter your self-storage unit this holiday season.

Chances are, you’ll be making multiple trips to your storage facility this holiday season.  To save time, it’s important to keep it clean and organized so you can spend more time with your family and less time sorting through boxes and bed frames.  Here are some reasons you may want to reorganize your self-storage unit this holiday season.

Holiday decorations  You’ll find it much easier to retrieve and restore your holiday decorations if you keep your space clean.  It’s likely been a year since you’ve accessed your holiday decor and if your storage unit isn’t clean, it probably means these items have found their way to the bottom of the pile.  Decorating is hard enough, don’t waste your time digging for decor.

Create space for household items  If you plan on being festive this holiday season, you’ll likely need to make room in your home for family and friends.  Declutter your home this holiday season to create space. An organized home helps to reduce stress and clear the mind, just what many of us need before the family arrives for dinner.

Make room for your favorite toys  It may be time to store your RV or boat.  If your storage unit is cluttered, you’ll likely waste a lot of time trying to make room for these larger items.  If you’ve acquired lots of things over the past year, it may be time to upgrade to a larger unit or rent a separate unit altogether.

Can you think of any other reasons to declutter your self storage unit this holiday season?  Let us know in the comments below!

Maximize your storage unit space by adding and removing seasonal gear.
Now that it’s heating up you are going to want easy access to all your gear for the summer such as: boats, fishing poles, swimming gear, inner tubes and more, which means you’re going to need more room in your home or garage. Your #storageunit is a great place to store gear you won’t use during the summer months to create extra space and declutter your home. 

To get started, create a list of things you won’t use and start organizing them into one place where they can be easily packed and brought to your storage unit. Having a hard time coming up with items? Here’s a list of common items to get you started.

-Sleds
-Snow Blower
-Winter Gear or Clothing
-Shovels
-Snowboards or Skis
-Winter Decorations
-Extra Bedding
-Snow Tires

What kind of winter gear will you be putting into storage? Let us know by commenting below!

Spring has arrived which means it is time to start organizing your things. 

As the season changes to warmer weather you will need to start the annual rotation of your gardening tools, outdoor gear and other equipment from your storage unit.

Spring is the perfect time to remove the extra stuff from your garage that you may not need in the summer months to come, which provides more space for the things that you do need.

Spring is also the perfect time to remove your patio furniture and the family BBQ from storage so you are prepared for backyard grilling and other fun summer activities.

What items are you excited to pull out of storage to use this summer?

How to Organize & Optimize Your Storage Space

One of the best ways to make your storage experience convenient and enjoyable is to plan ahead when packing your storage space. 

Here are few helpful tips to consider.

1. Keep a detailed list of all items - You should know exactly which items are going to be stored and keep a list so that you can refer to it whenever you need something. 

2. Consider using protective covering - Depending on the climate you may want to lay down moisture absorbers, a tarp, or other protective fabrics both on the floor and around valuable items.

3. Make sure you you can access items out of reach - Keep a fold-up step ladder in your storage unit so that you can easily and safely reach items that may otherwise be too high. 

4. Know which items you’ll need the most often. - Understanding which items you will use most often allows you to plan ahead and pack those things near the entrance of your storage unit for easy access. 

5. Create an aisle of space to access everything. - Pack things along the walls and leave the middle open or simply leave an aisle of space so that nothing will be out of reach.

I'm currently using A-1 for some temporary storage as I sell one home and move into another. The escrows didn't line up so I have my stuff in storage until I can move it to my new house. The sign up process was super easy, and the gal at the front desk helped me figure out how much space I'd need. She also gave my 4 year old daughter a pencil and paper to draw on while I did paperwork. I don't expect service like that anywhere, much less at a self storage place. Can't beat that! The unit is clean and secure, and the elevator and hallways are always clean and well maintained.

I recently rented a storage unit for a client of mine and Letty made the process as easy and pleasant as I could have hoped for. She was friendly, professional and efficient. The rental rates are quite reasonable and the facility appears to be clean and well run.

I have been using A1 Self Storage for quite some time now. The facility is always clean and very secure. Letty the manager is very friendly and helpful. I recently needed a second space for more of my stuff and Letty made the process very easy. She recommended a size that worked out perfectly. I am absolutely happy with this place and have recommended a few friends. If you need storage, A1 is the place to go!

BE PREPARED TO HAVE AN RENTAL INCREASE EVERY YEAR / 6MONTHS! My experience with A-1 Self Storage hasn't been a great one. MY ONLY issue is with billing. My spaces have been great, everything is clean, but when it comes down to it. Its all about money. I was overpaying for a space in Redondo, thus I came to A-1 Self Storage. Since I have been there, I have had a raise in monthly rent, every year! Now I am paying $24 dollars MORE, then I was originally paying when I moved my storage here in the first place. This company is all about your money. I PROMISE YOU, after your first year you will see nothing but rate increases. After my 2nd Rate Increase I complained and was told on the phone that there would not be another rate increase on my unit for years. I was actually told that. 3 months later I got a rate increase. I called to reference my conversation about NO MORE INCREASES and they had no idea what I was talking about. Like I made it all up in my head. I am going to take my buiz elsewhere as soon as the next increase hits. My space is small enough its no big deal. I really feel sorry for people with big spaces that really can't move. Your going to get screwed here but maybe its like this with all rental spots. Paying this much money for my little box is absolutely RIDICULOUS! The A-1 I go to is in Torrance on Earl. Take your business elsewhere! I'm so glad the company asked me to leave a review. People need to know what will happen upon becoming a customer here. Again... Everything else is great, except for getting wallet raped every month. If your a fan of that, come on down!

Thank you for your feedback. We, like most storage companies, move in customers at extremely discounted rates. We therefore review those rates at 5-6 months and sometimes make adjustments accordingly. We then review rates again after another 12 months and evaluate market conditions and pricing. If you would like to discuss this matter with an Area Manager, please email social@a1storage.com with your contact details.
